I-Team Waste Watch investigation prompts angry responses

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The results of a Newschannel 3 I-Team investigation are stirring up controversy in one local community.

Earlier this month, we reported how twenty different local governments forfeited taxpayer money by not filing necessary paperwork in time.

There were some who were happy with us, and others who were none too pleased that the I-Team found that waste--that leaders botched a chance to get funding for their communities.

In fact, a trustee in Lawton was so upset with the I-Team's findings that the local newspaper reported he said in a public meeting that the Newschannel 3 report was "all a lie."

Newschannel 3 Chief Investigative Reporter David Bailey joined us to tell us why our Waste Watch investigation prompted some anger and is also prompting some change.
